GeoThermal Magnesium Oil for Toe, Foot & Leg Cramps in Your Yoga Practice

Whether you enjoy an intense and sweaty 90-minutes of Hot Yoga or a fast-paced, fluid Vinyasa Flow, chances are you have experience cramping in your toes, feet, calves or legs during or after practice.

These painful cramps are known to strike especially during specific poses like pigeon and hero where the foot is tucked under and the bottom of the foot faces the ceiling  This can also happen in cobra pose as well.

Some of the exercises performed in yoga simply apply a lot of stress on the the lower half of the body. Excessive stretching and pointing of the toes in the stretching motions may result in uncomfortable pain and cramps.

Excessive Fluid Loss

Most people require about two liters of water every day. That’s about 6-8 glasses of 8 ounces of H20. Our bodies are constantly losing water through perspiration and urination. Although yoga may seem relaxing and relatively easy on the body, it does involve many of our muscle groups that burn calories in the process.

The body heat generated by the exercises like yoga results in water loss through perspiration. Low water levels in body fluids cause localized, chemical imbalances in the toes leading to inflammation and ultimately cramping.

It is important to make sure that you keep your body well hydrated to prevent yourself from dehydrating.

Maintaining Calcium and Magnesium Levels in the Body

Calcium and magnesium are mineral elements that are extremely important in creating strong bones and ligaments. As a matter of fact magnesium is the second most abundant element inside our body’s cells. Oxygen is number one. When we sweat, we also lose magnesium, sodium and potassium. Low magnesium is the major cause of muscle cramps everywhere in the body. (This includes leg and foot cramps). Scientists believe these symptoms are caused by a greater flow of calcium into nerve cells, which overexcites or hyper-stimulates the muscle nerves.

To avoid muscle cramping during or after your yoga practice we recommend a full rub down, body application of our pure magnesium oil  before and after your practice especially right before bedtime.

 

Yoga Poses That Help Alleviate Cramps

Certain yoga poses that involve pressing of the toes against the floor – such as the Cobra pose – are one of the main causes of toe cramps. During such moves, the toes support the body weight and this can result in discomfort and pain. You can avoid toe cramps by performing yoga poses like Downward-Facing dog and/or Child’s pose while in practice.
